Description

Tiny yields, this fruit is hand-harvested lovingly by only Yarra Yering staff, into the cool room overnight and then whole bunch pressed. Only lightly pressed for the highest quality free-run juice, which is then run off to oak barrels without any clarification for primary fermentation. Largely left alone until bottling after 10 months. Only two barrels are produced, one new oak, the other 2 years old. The skins and any juice not pressed is then caught out of the press and frozen to be used in the Dry Red Wine No. 2 ferment weeks later.

Review

From vines planted in 1982. Whole-bunched pressed to oak. Interestingly, the skins are frozen to be used in the Dry Red No 2. A bright green gold. Marzipan, cumquat marmalade, candied ginger and lemongrass can all be found in this round, generously flavoured yet well-balanced wine.

Tasting Profile

Nose
Signature apricot blossom, lifted white flowers of honeysuckle and a little musk stick aroma.
Palate
Fresh white nectarine delivers the weight and flavour, hints of lemon citrus bring an acid twist to drive the back palate and keep the weight in check. A chalky texture and some oak tannin from barrel maturation carrying the flavour to a long lingering finish.
